Re: wearables
@staceyE. I think wearables are still make for a niche user population; although, it could be use to get people with weight problems to manage their food and calorie intake.  the problem I issue is to convince people to get the device and use it on a regular basis.

Re: wearables
Hi Pedro

I agree with you that wearable technology had a ton of potential in the healthcare industry. It would be so much easier to monitor a heart patient through technology in his t-shirt than a cumbersome medical device strapped around his wrist...

Re: wearables

Wearbales are going beyond consumers .I read the NFL was testing wearables on their players during specific games to provide teams with more insight on a particular player and their performance so it's already making its impact there. Wearables are able being used in many offices and factories for employee efficiency benefits.

Re: Directions
Technology addicts are still finding the reason to wear a smartwatch whereas the conventional user of the watch will stick to its original form. Usually people gets cautious about their health at certain age when they will be really interested in using smartwatch health feature. Before that, health monitoring would be the least concern of an average user. I still feel it like an addon.

Options beyond cool

Wearable navigation maybe a great solution for helping the visually impaired navigate to places they need to go—especially if its voice activated. I think wearables can offer great benefits beyond the cool factor to those who are disabled or who suffer from chronic medical conditions.

Re: Directions
Funny enough, this is probably the only feature I really use from my Pebble smartwatch aside from being able to see texts and emails.  It's practical for when I am commuting so I can avoid staring at my phone, but beyond that I still haven't found too much use for it otherwise.  Smart watches are great concepts, but when my desktop email signals and then my phone and watch, it's a little overkill in the notification department.

Love the example of a piece of clothing giving you haptic cues for navigating a new place. Hadn't heard that one. Imagine that, combined with google maps, would appeal to many people visting NYC or Boston, for example. You can't be looking at your iphone every two seconds.

Re: wearables
@PedroG Yes, there's amazing potential there. And having the sensors built into clothes makes them less obtrusive than having them in bulky plastic strapped to one's wrist.
